Uber's, Cool riffin'. Cool mic! But I'm thinking an Ebtech Hum Eliminator after that pre of yours and the ground loop will be gone! I can *almost* guarantee it. Those little two channel jobbies work wonders. I had a hum on a IVL Digitech Vocalist harmonizor rack recently and the Ebtech totally 'zapp...

Lots of good info/comments above from everyone & I agree with all of them! My 2 cents: With younger bands, it's really hard these days, as there are so many things that are "disconnects" and there's no substitute for rehearsal, lyrical tone/direction and competent playing! I often say: "You can't mi...

Gotcha! Sorry to sound like such a fanboy about SPACES but it's really cool. I imagine you've done your 28" research, I was pretty surprised when I saw these 28" Hanns on Newegg for $299. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254026&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_...

Hi Stephen, Nice room! I see you're on MAC Pro Tools and if you're rolling LEOPARD I didn't see anyone mention SPACES. I have 2 22" LCDs myself, but the Mac Spaces feature is TOTALLY Sweet! If you check it out, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised! The big thing for me was to only use the MIDDLE M...

Hi Harley, Kerry, Rob and everybody, Still looking :shock: for a Roomie for the nights of 5th - 8th. My potential roomie got a local hook up. But it's much sweeter to be at the conference hotel.

Looking for a roomie at PotLuckCon

Hi everyone, subject says it all. One again -my local recording buddy, Matt Truman , can't make it (shocker!) Having attended in 2006 & 2007 I can truly state that there is no 'cooler' gathering of audio centric 'lifers' (okay AES is close) then what was formerly known as the TapeOp Conference. Pot ...

ALSO Need Roommate @ El Con Hilton June 7-11

Hi potential roommates! :-) I too (like Brad) booked a room early to lock in the $99 rate, and have had my buddy decide he's can't afford to go. The room has double Queen beds & I'm hoping to split with someone. Also I'll be driving down from Phoenix and will have a car. (another plus :) About me: I...

Gina's Pro Tools book is a good read for a newbie on PT.

It has color graphics & a nice conversational tone. She
favors bars and beats. There is an index at the following link
